How much you can get
How much Disability Support Pension (DSP) you can get depends on your age and living conditions.
If you’re under 21, the amount of DSP you get depends on whether we assess you as dependent or independent.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
If your Disability Support Pension (DSP) stops, you may still get a Pensioner Concession Card.
Some people can get income support payments paid each week instead of each fortnight.
The transitional rate started in 2009. It's for pensioners who would get a lower rate if we used the new income test.
